Policies

Mountain Playshop is committed to maintaining a workshop environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. For the safety and enjoyment of all, attendees are expected to be respectful of other participants and camp staff, and to follow camp rules.  The policy, as adopted by the Playshop Board, reserves the right to require any person to leave Camp if their behavior is extraordinarily disruptive or inappropriate, and/or poses a threat to the campers, him/herself, or others as determined by a consensus of Board members.  Any concerns can be communicated to Camp Chairs or Board members.

Please note that we will not have exclusive use of the entire conference center. (We will have exclusive use of Weatherford Hall). Instead, we will be sharing the YMCA with people attending other events. Please take a few moments to review the camp maps in our registration package to help you navigate around the camp.

COVID Safety

Mountain Playshop will follow all NC health directives regarding private gatherings.

Due to the virus transmission risks with close contact indoor dancing, we respectfully request that people defer attendance if not vaccinated against Covid 19 or experiencing respiratory symptoms.  We look forward to seeing those dancers at lower risk dance venues or when are well!

Harassment & Discrimination

Mountain Playshop is committed to maintaining a workshop environment that is free from discrimination and harassment.  Accordingly, it is the policy of Mountain Playshop that all participants be free from all forms of harassment and intimidation.

In a diverse community, what is acceptable behavior to one person may be unacceptable to another, and some behaviors are illegal. Harassment can include, but is not limited to, slurs, unwanted nicknames, threats, derogatory comments, and unwelcome jokes or pranks that would make a reasonable person experiencing such harassment uncomfortable in the workshop environment. Additionally, harassment includes verbal and physical conduct of a sexual nature when such conduct creates an uncomfortable, intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment. This may include, but is not limited to, inappropriate comments regarding an individual’s body, physical appearance, attire, sexual orientation; unwelcome flirting, propositions; inappropriate touching; pranks and jokes with sexual connotations. The complete Policy on Harassment and Discrimination, including how to report an incident, can be found here: Policy on Harassment and Discrimination.

Fragrances

Due to common sensitivities, we are fragrance free.  Please refrain from using perfumed or fragranced personal products while at the workshop.
